ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION)

A group of fishermen working in the northern Tumbe region of Peru made a big find at the weekend — an enormous manta ray reportedly weighing one tonne (1.1 tons).

The ray was found in the La Crove cove in northern waters near the border with Ecuador on Saturday (April 18).

The area is roughly 1,280 km (795 miles) to the north of Lima. The one-tonne (1.1 tons), eight-metre- (26 feet)-long stingray had to be transported by a tow truck.

Peru’s marine authorities, IMARPE, have reportedly been in contact with the group of fisherman for information on their find.
